Magnus Gjoen


Once a fashion designer for big-name labels including Vivienne Westwood, Gjoen has turned his attention to contemporary art with stunning effect. Using intricate florals and pattern honed during his study of design in London and Milan, he shows that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places, including skulls, beetles and grenades. In other works, he adorns the kind of dusty classic portraits found in lesser-visited gallery rooms with witty scrawled faces, giving them a new lease of life.

In 2017, Gjoen teamed up with London’s Wallace Collection to create a series of prints based on its exhibits.
